Peugeot is recently made an announcement that the production of the 2008 will be doubled in order to meet a very strong demand for the attractive crossover.

The 2008 is manufactured at PSA’s factory in Mulhouse in eastern France where currently 5,000 units are being made each month. Peugeot’s chief Maxime Picat stated that the production will be doubled to 10,000 units per month starting September when they will add a second shift. Picat mentioned that the company has already received 16,000 orders and most of them come from dealerships where the car hasn’t even been showcased yet.

Peugeot believes they will be able to produce 200,000 units of the 2008 crossover in 2015. Of the total, 100,000 units will be produced in Mulhouse for Europe, China and South America, while 45,000 cars will be made in Brazil and remaining 55,000 units would be manufactured in China.
